Yeah, a lopez a used 2011 probably wouldn't save me much as I'm looking at just over 25k for a new one and used cars have higher interest rates. Now maybe if I could find a demo or something...

btw I noticed that there was a 1994 Cobra in the paper for 3k. I don't know the condition or miles yet, but it said it has some extras. If its even halfway nice I could pay cash for it and save some money that I would have spent on payments for about a year and have maybe 4-4.5k instead of only 3 to play with now and maybe get a 2013 next year at this time. Only thing is I wonder if they will offer similar discounts of around 5k at that time?
Dayum, you got 'Stang fever bad, huh? I would only be guessing, but a 1994 for $3000 might be in need of some TLC, interior might not be in best condition, etc... If you a comfortable doing mechanical stuff, then it might be a good choice. However, it will be a very different experience driving it compared to your much newer Hyundai.

I would not put alot of value in it being a Cobra because it still pales in HP to a newer 2005-2010 GT and the newer 3.7 V6's, but according to online sources, the 1994 only had 240HP from the factory. However, since it was a 302ci motor, it could probably be massaged to exceed that amount with no problems, money permitting. Those engines are still very potent powerplants with the right bolt-ons.

Good luck.

Yeah, not my first pick either but it just happened to be in our local paper. I had a 95 GT for about 9 months back in the day and got rid of it after one winter as I couldn't get out of my driveway. Although thinking back, it most likely had summer tires on it (I didn't know a lot about cars at the time). I'm sure the newer cars do a lot better in the white stuff with the LSD, traction control and some decent tires? My car didn't do too bad at all once I put some Conti extremes on the rear. I'm sure I could look around and find something else in that ballpark if I had to. I'm not sure about that guy buying my car now too as it sounds like I have to send the payment in since its a lease and then they send the title back to me after about a week. It would be ok with me, but I don't know what the guy is going to think about it when I tell him. He was thinking he could drive up here and then go somewhere to sign the papers over and it looks like I can't do it that way.
